been a centralized decision, and you've got one organization called cloud flare out of california that published this fascinating video which shows how the route to syrian upstream providers one by one were shut down all starting after noon local time on thursday, effectively plunging 20 million syrians into internet darkness. now, it's the opposition that has made very effective use of the internet thus far, actually, using the internet to upload opposition videos, to youtube, get their voices out to the outside world. so, it doesn't seem like they would have much of an incentive to plunge syria into internet darkness. and despite the fact that the state internet providers went down, the opposition activists have still been getting their images out of friday, the traditional anti-government protests, via alternative methods of communication, satellite phones, for example. that we know the u.s. and the british governments have been supplying to activists. we've seen them out in the streets calling for the downfall of the syrian regime as they've done every friday for 20 bloody dea
amazon had advantages in key states like california. low sales tax. local book stores already on pressure for the rabid rise of ebooks feel particularly squeezed. michael tucker owns a chain of book stores in san francisco. >> if you can save 10%, why wouldn't you? >> reporter: but amazon's tax advantage recently disappeared in california, adding 7 to nearly 10% to the cost of each order. it also began taxing this year in other states like pennsylvania and texas. on-line retailers collect tax only for states where they have a physical presence. now here in california, amazon is building two giant warehouses, including this one near los angeles. it's a million square feet, and for the old-fashioned retailers, it's another reason to worry. why? because amazon's goal is to get items to customers faster and to be able to offer same-day delivery. that's right. you can avoid stores if you want and have a package delivered to your house in a matter of hours. a win for consumers but tough for local retailers. >> if amazon creates distribution centers and facilities on their turf locally, that tak
john torigoe has that story from california. >> i am currently in fighting training with the california conservation corps. hold it and just pull. there is an awful lot of training, so it's really good they're doing this especially for veterans because it can be hard sometimes to find good jobs. we played with the chain saw, just kind of get associated, a little more familiar with it. then we practiced laying hose from an engine, which we hadn't done yet, with actual water. >> that's what influences the land fires, right? >> since it's mostly veterans, it's really easy for a lot of us to just click and work together, so the teamwork thing fell into place very well. i was an aviation, hydraulics and air frame mechanic. i was at camp pendleton and we deployed to afghanistan in 2010. i know it was a really bloody summer while we were there. i saw a lot of bodies come back. >> my job was quarter master. we helped out with amphibious operations. i was so focused on the navy at one point in time, i never imagined myself being a firefighter. i never imagined myself going through the training.
of these various places. dallas, texas. you have a store in maryland. you have stores here in california that we're expecting later in the day. so tlar number of stores across the country where we're seeing more of these protests. but walmart says you have to look beyond just the bodies there. when they look at who showed up and walked off the shop, only about 50 employees did not show up as they were scheduled. they're saying they have the same number of employees who didn't show up for work last year as they had this year. so what walmart is saying is they believe and they keep pushing this, is this is a union-backed effort that as far as the walmart employees, they believe this is limited. talk to some of these people in the picket lines today and they will tell you that this is a very important move for them. that they are hoping to make a message on a potent shopping day. >> i'm getting the sense that the protest and picket lines are keeping any shoppers away? >> not at all. when actually we talked to some of the employees who were working overnight here at this particular walmart the emplo

not basically in iowa. >> reporter: matters how california looks and how nevada and virginia looks. >> right. >> it is difficult for mitt romney to say this economy is in free fall, it is not. unemployment rate here is pretty darn good, 5.2%, the lowest in the country. the president won by ten points here in the last election, my question for you, sue, why isn't he locking it down? >> you know, we actually feel like we're locking it down, we have been locking it down for two years. >> i think she is selling you something, they are not locking it down. >> reporter: we found plenty of people in iowa who are not convinced. >> we can't sustain itself, you hear these big huge empires, countries are going bankrupt. it will be us. >> reporter: he doesn't think he has plans for the deficit. >> i don't think either side has plans for it. it becomes the lesser of two evils. >> reporter: kevin says he can't plan a 2013 budget and certainly can't hire. >> our customers are just slow. they're just not ordering. >> reporter: he says like him, they're frozen, waiting to see who wins the election and whethe
? >> you know, they definitely want him, you can see that. in fact, senator feinstein of california, who is head of the senate intelligence committee, wants him, is hoping that he would testify as early as friday. he was scheduled to testify this week. in fact, i believe it was thursday. that's not happening. but, you know, youf got two things. one is they believe that the information that he has, obviously, would be valuable. and, in fact, in some cases they would say crucial. the other thing is there are allegations by some republicans that the timing of his stepping down and all of his scandal is connected to the investigation. now that is surmisal on their part. that's allegations. there certainly is a lot of interest in getting him up there to tell what he knows. >> jill dougherty, reporting live for us this morning. >>> it has been eight months since the president has held a news conference at the white house. as you know, a lot has happened since then. attacks in benghazi, re-election, fiscal cliff we're getting very close to. white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us now.
down to the california coast. we're talking about the sierra but it will affect all the way from british columbia down to south of san francisco. one storm after the other. those are the huge waves. high surf warnings along the coast. you need to stay out of the water and all surfers are going to want to be in the water. a big, big event for the west. we haven't talked about this big of an event, i don't think, probably for years for the west coast, ashleigh. >> for yearses? >> yes. >> you said 20 inches of rain, ten feet of snow. that usually translates into landslides for people of california. >> no doubt about it. and this heavy rain isn't through all of the burn areas but there are burn areas affected. what i mean by that, if you're on the east coast, once you have a fire in the higher elevations, from sierra up and down from california to washington, you don't have the roots of the plant trying to hold that dirt in and the dirt just want to move and it's a one-two punch. you've lost all of the vegetation around your house and now you're going to lose all of the dirt around y

states. it's not a surprise. california. the other two are florida and texas, which i found interesting. big population of veterans. >> texas is another big state. >> yeah, another big state. and the state with the highest percentage of veterans, i would have never have guessed this. >> highest percentage? >> highest percentage. the answer, alaska. 14%. >> like per capita? >> yeah, out of every 100 -- 14% of the population in alaska. there's one thing i want to remind everyone. president obama was talking about this. there are 3.5 million americans in this country who have disabilities due to their military service and they have different ratings on that in terms of their disabilities. but that's important for all of us to keep in mind. these are people whose disabilities stem from their service to the country. 3.5 million people like that. there are a lot more. during the conversation of ireport, we're celebrating the wisdom of veterans. >> extraordinary individuals who made ultimate sacrifices in so many different ways. all right, josh, thank you for that. >> you bet. >>> you heard so

're not competitive. in huge areas of the country. some of the biggest states, california, new york, illinois, we're not competing anymore. we don't even advertise there. once you give up those electoral votes, we're getting down to where we have to -- we're in ohio every time, we have to win florida and ohio every time. what we need to do is be competitive throughout the united states, and i think young people want a less aggressive foreign policy. they don't want to put people in 20 years in jail for marijuana use or nonviolent crimes. and i think they want a little bit different approach to immigration. >> okay. you say you want to be part of the national dialogue. perhaps a bigger part of it. we shall see. senator rand paul, thank you very much, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> and now to the face to face meeting today between u.n. ambassador susan rice and her chief republican critics. ambassador rice on capitol hill, just this morning, to meet with the people you see on your screen here. you have senator john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte. she went to address concerns they have ov

in california. what happens if the court decides not to hear this one? >> it is tricky, don, because first of all, nothing is simple to the supreme court. it depends what the court does. the court could formally reject that case, which means the lower court ruling stands, so for proposition 8, a federal appeals court already ruled that the ban which passed as a referendum by the way is unconstitutional. so the supreme court rejecting the case would basically make same sex marriage legal again in california. this is another big point, though, the supreme court could simply decide just to sit on the case, not hear it this term, not reject it either and that basically would put the decision off to a later date. and then at that time, california would just sort of be stuck in a legal limbo until the court makes a decision. >> all right. so we'll just basically what you're saying we'll have to wait and see what happens on this one, right? >> yeah. >> several cases deal with doma, the defense of marriage act, is what we're talking about. what is at the heart of those cases and how likely is it t

well in places like california where people drive long distances and where a lot of people are very concerned about the environment and want to drive hybrid or electric vehicles. so even though they haven't been so strong throughout the rest of the country, companies like general motors continue to push ahead with these vehicles. here is their newest introduction, which will be on the market in 2014. only available for sale in california and in oregon initially. this is the chevy spark. it is an all electric vehicle that will get somewhere south of 100 miles on a full charge. what's really cool about this vehicle is you'll be able to charge it up to 80% capacity in just 20 minutes. that is a challenge, though, getting the rest of america outside of places like california to buy these vehicles. listen to what gm had to say about that. >> the key now is to sell these vehicles in the same kind of quantity in st. louis and des moines, in the heartland of america, if you will. when you drive an electric car, we're not going to sell this thing on the environmental aspect aspects. these ca
wade into this issue, one of the cases they can hear is the appeal of california's prop 8, the ballot metro that bans same-sex marriage. what's at stake? is. >> the first word is if, and so you have to reiterate that we don't know if that decision to take up this case is going to come today or even this term. it could and it might, and there's speculation that it will, but if the supreme court has anything, it's unpredictable, and on the proposition 8 case, there's a specific question. can a state referendum abolish same-sex marriage after the courts have already ruled that it's legal? remember, that statewide vote to ban gay marriage was in response to courts in california legalizing same-sex marriage. assuming the supreme court sticks to this specific issue, it would have big implications for, say, california, but wouldn't necessarily be a sweeping ruling that would impact same-sex marriage all over the country. >> joe, talk a little bit about these cases that are challenging the federal defense of marriage act, known as doma. this is essentially the law that defines marriage betwee
